Morning Folks February 1, 2009 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit

Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit.

February is here. Are we ready for it? February. The only time we actually yearn for March winds in the face of that month's deep freeze. I may not be in the snow belt anymore, but I have experienced my share of Februaries with frozen ground and pond and bleak frigid days that chill anything and anyone that is forced to venture out into them. It is a month that has some fun in it with Groundhogs and Valentines and a long weekend for Presidents Day if you are lucky. But the best thing about February in my opinion, is that it's short.

"February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March."- Dr. J. R. Stockton

"February, when the days of winter seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of summer." - Shirley Jackson, Raising Demons

"February makes a bridge and March breaks it."- George Hebert

"Why, what's the matter,

That you have such a February face,

So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?"

- William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing

"Come when the rains
Have glazed the snow and clothed the trees with ice,
While the slant sun of February pours
Into the bowers a flood of light.

Approach!The incrusted surface shall upbear thy steps
And the broad arching portals of the grove
Welcome thy entering."

-William Cullen Bryant, A Winter Piece

"There is a privacy about it which no otherseason gives you. In spring, summer, and fall people sort of have an open season on each other;only in the winter, in the country, can youhave longer, quiet stretches when youcan savor belonging to yourself."- Ruth Stout

"The most serious charge which can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February." - Joseph Wood Krutch

"In the bleak midwinter

Frosty wind made moan,

Earth stood hard as iron,

Water like a stone.

Snow had fallen, snow on snow,

Snow on snow,

In the bleak midwinter,

Long ago."- Christina Rossetti

Keep Warm Everyone. Have a Fabulous February.
